American
Designed to reflect a classic boathouse along the Charles River, Prime’s multi-level visual expanse is just the beginning of this destination experience. Dedicated to the expression of modern American cuisine, Prime is the flagship of the Bohlsen Restaurant Group. A custom designed glass wall in the center of our Main Dining Room is an artistic balance to the shimmer of Huntington Harbor just outside our doors. Spend an afternoon in the comfy wood Lounge, compete with a fireplace and luxurious leather couches. Venture out to the fire pit on our intimate Fantail, reminiscent of a boat’s bow. Exquisite water views from the Wave Bar or enjoyed while dining on the covered and seasonally enclosed Porch are a perfect backdrop when sipping Prime’s extensive list of refined signature cocktails.

This is the first time I’ve been here in recent memory where they weren’t on their game

. Everything was just one off. It took them a while to seat us (6pm res) although not busy. Only 1 bread plate for a table for 2 . We ordered oysters (which were fresh and amazing) shrimp(1 was not great), crab meat cocktail (pretty tasty)tuna tartare( eh) sushi (pretty good) and a salad (very good) . Our server was nice , helpful,and efficient.
All in all underwhelming;which is highly unusual. Of course the view is a 10.

Rude valet parking lot manager. Our guests were 15 minutes late and they gave away our outside table . Waiter brought my order ,and my filet mignon rolled off the plate and onto the tablecloth. No apology from the waiter, he just turned and walked away.

Very good food but too expensive for us. My wife and I knew the prices going in, but we had a nice gift certificate to pay for a little more than half of our tab. The service was very good, and everyone one we interacted with was warm and friendly. We were greeted with "Happy Anniversary" when we checked in. I had noted it was our anniversary on my OpenTable reservation. The different staff that waited on us also wished us a happy anniversary. We really had a nice dinner, never felt rushed and we liked where we were seated. Overall it was a very nice special occasion experience.

What was outstanding about Prime were the service, quality of food, ambience. Our waiter, Ben, did an excellent job, and Kate, your maitre d' handled our reservation with class. While prime charges top prices, considering everything it was well worth the cost.

We were celebrating our 45th anniversary and wanted someplace with a view and exceptional food and service. Prime totally delivered. From the moment we arrived ,the hosted wished us a Happy Anniversary as did our servers. The food was exceptional. Very herd to find a beef Wellington on most restaurant menus and mine was perfection. The stuffed lobster with additional lump crab meat was delicious. Dessert was brought with a chocolate Happy Anniversary medallion on the plate and once again we were wished congratulations. Prime is the perfect venue to celebrate a special occasion and worth the price. As they say, you get what you pay for and definitely true for Prime. Would definitely recommend this venue.

A couple flaws with our orders but the service was provided with diligence. The food was delicious besides the lobster and lobster bisque we had. They accommodated my request of having a message written on a plate of dessert which I appreciated.

Jay, our server, was the best. His attentiveness was spot on yet never overbearing.

On the pricey side. We only would go for special occasions. Outside seating was nice and bit cozy. We had filet mignon steak, which was made perfectly. It was crunchy outside and soft inside. The sides are big enough for two people. The aspergillus and wiped potatoes tasted great. We also loved the cheesecake. Sushi was typical and nothing special. Spicy margarita was good and not watered down. For the price it shouldn't be. Our waiter was super friendly.

Surprised the service was lacking. Server difficult to understand. We sat for a long time before approached. I had bragged about my previous visits, this was embarrassing. The food was excellent. I asked for more rolls and the waiter said you must be finished with this. One roll remained. It was removed. . Will come again, but not happy with this visit. Others around us were getting more attention.

VERY DISAPPOINTED.....
This was supposed to be a very special dinner for a special occasion. We were very disappointed with the service. Our server ( male Asian named Joe) greeted us and gave us our menus. His demeanor was that of a college frat boy. He came back a short time later and took our drink order. I asked him what the fish of the day was, so that I could decide on my dinner choice. He immediately stated “No I will let you know after I put your drink order in and I’ll go over all of that at the same time as other specials, when I come back”. I was simply apauled and embarrassed in front of my family and friends. First off, I couldn’t believe that he would speak to a customer like that and second just dismiss me. After he walked away, I reached for my water glass to take a sip and them put it down not realizing the table had a defect which caused my glass to spill completely on my husband. He attempted to get Joe’s attention, who was standing close by but he never came over. My husband had to wipe the table a chair himself as no staff in the area came over. Joe brings the drinks over and some were prepared incorrectly, (not a big deal) but waiter Joe gave us an attitude and basically took the rocks glass and just stained out the ice into a martini glass , instead of just getting a new drink. His service was extremely unprofessional and would not expect such a poor level of service in what is supposed to be an upscale establishment. Right down to the end of the night when he gave us drinks we did not order, half cups of coffee, and finally the wrong check.... We were very disappointed that our special occasion was ruined due to such below standards service!! Hope management addresses these issues.

Went to watch the sun set while enjoying a good meal. The service (Bist was the waiter) was impeccable. The steaks were fantastic, along with the sides. The branzino, however, was inedible, hopefully just a one-off mistake.

The food was great but a bit pricey for the portions you get. The waiter spilled a full glass of wine on my friend. He was covered in red wine from head to toe. I had to take my polo shirt off so he can wear it. The manager was made aware of the situation and she did the right thing by us. Would eat there again. 👍👌
